Best. Barbecue. Ever.

Don't be fooled by the exterior of the building - this is barbecue worth a special trip. I had the pulled pork dinner and my husband had the 1/2 rack of ribs. Wished my stomach was bigger - the pork was tender and the barbecue sauce was a great balance of hot and tangy with just the right amount... read more

Our first time with vinegar base bbq sauce takes some getting use to when use to molasses or tomato base sauce. Ribs were dry and tuff but the fish was good! Great service and atmosphere!

Good food. Excellent ribs. Get there early because they can sell out of chicken. You know, everybody likes chicken! The buffalo wings are excellent and they sell good drinks. Wish they had a grown and sexy night for the older crowds...

We have been in Alabama for 6 days and have experienced some of the worst service ever, until we visited Archibald and Woodrow ' s bbq. We were looking for some authentic southern bbq and we weren't disappointed. Thanks. .

Don't let all the press Dreamland gets fool you, Archibald is the best BBQ in T-town and always has been! If you're lucky for a fine dining experience you should look elsewhere, the original location only has a few seats and the other locations aren't huge but the ribs and pulled pork are AMAZING!! Not to mention the sauce! Great... More

Wonderful barbecue with a great vinegar sauce which made plain thin store bought white bread a delicacy! We will go again!

As other Trip Advisor reviewers have indicated, the food here is quite good. We had a pork and a rib dinner accompanied by collard greens and black eyed peas. The ribs were perfect....meat didn't fall off the bones but came off easily when I was ready for it!! The pork was equally perfect with an interesting sauce...somewhat thin and vinegar... More

Locals had recommended this place which is so small I drove by it the first time around. Delicious ribs, collard greens, and the catfish was the best I've ever had. Free refills of fountain diet dew top off the experience.

This place looked like a little shack and we were a little nervous to go in. However, the friendly waitress and the good food made it worth the venture inside.

This visit was at building #2. It is a small area to eat inside-maybe seats 20. Take out seems to be way to go. They have an extensive menu. The prices for what you get are a great deal ! I had the 6pc jumbo hot wings...they were good! A new spin of the sauce. It was a hot sauce... More
